    Alexio's Scarf


    Alexio’s Scarf
    Design by Scott Kluesner

    © Dyeabolical Yarns, 2008; © Scott Kluesner, 2006. All rights reserved. 

    Materials

    *100-150g of desired weight in a wool. Any weight from DK through aran weight is recommended.
    Yarn used: 1 skein of Dyeabolical Yarns Super Ego in Firefly colorway, 100% superwash wool in a DK weight to make a short scarf

    * US 7 or 8, if using an aran, US, 5 or 6 if using worsted weight, US 3 or 4 if you are using DK, etc. Use at least 1-2 needle sizes smaller than you would normally use with the yarn you have chosen. Go down 2-3 needle sizes if using superwash wool since superwash likes to grow once washed.

    Gauge

    * Gauge for this project is flexible. Your primary concern is to make your stitches tight enough that they easily pull into a wave pattern, but not so tight as to make it difficult to knit. In general, smaller needles make wavier waves.
    * Gauge for the scarf pictured is 5 sts/inch in pattern when held flat and stretched.
